situation got so absurd that at one point in the fall before britain banned the export, the bbc ran a headline that made you ask, what country is this? what century is this? that line was this. leithal injection drug sold from uk driving school. an unlicensed company was selling lethal injection drugs out of a driving school in west london to corrections departments in the united states of america. at least one state, arizona, reportedly killed a prisoner using drugs imported from the driving school. the federal government responded by seizing the illegally imported lethal injection drugs in at least three states. clearly the old drug was getting harder and harder to buy and hold onto without it being confiscated by the feds, so a number of states decided to stop using it altogether and decided to switch to a new kind of drug, one that is used all the time only not on humans. it's what veterinarians use to euthanize animals. ohio was the first to use it to kill a prisoner in march. a week later, texas made the switch. and now one of the companies that makes that drug is advising ameri

, particularly in britain so far, is likely to change that media empire here as well. mr. murdoch's company is not just a massive company, it is massively influential in u.s. politics, particularly in conservative u.s. politics, because his properties here include the "wall street journal," the most influential business newspaper in the country. and also "the new york post," the most influential tabloid newspaper in the country. and the fox news channel, which is a very successful full employment program for republican candidates. when the rupert murdoch scandal broke about bribery and illegal phone hacking as a regular way of doing business at his news properties, rupert murdoch had to drop his $12 billion bid to buy a satellite television channel in britain. had the deal gone through, he would have controlled 40% of all commercial television in britain. here it's 27 tv stations and the "wall street journal" and the fox news channel and "the new york post" and, and, and, and. i think the high noon light of day question to ask about all this is how vulnerable that empire is now that it's all c
